Book Club tonight

Meet Oreo! The newest member of our family,
Parents are my two youngest!

It is one of my favorite evenings to
gather up a group of ladies for
Autumn Feast ( soup, salad, bread,
dessert, cider, even some wine) to
discuss a book. This time it is on
the Sabbath: The Rest of God by
Mark Buchanan. I love what my
pastor said in a recent sermon:
"The Sabbath is a gift. It is a gift
to do nothing!" Wow, why would we
not receive it? Hard to stop and rest.
Not sleep, although it can be that,
but even rest from noise and clutter
and chaos and drink of living water.
Tonight will certainly be a taste of it.
We have wonderful Julia Child kind
of cooks amidst the group.
Amen. Amen.

Your book group sounds so wonderful! Our little Knoxhouse group that was led by Greg came to an end this year in light of New College Franklin's birth (it was a worthy sacrifice) but we are missing each other so much that we've planned a gathering soon. Book group friends are such dear friends, aren't they?

Your little kitty is soooo cute!
